Competition is a contest between individuals, groups, nations, animals, etc. for territory, a niche, or a location of resources... It arises whenever two or more parties strive for a goal whichcannot be shared. Competition occurs naturally between living organisms which co-exist in the same environment. For example, animals compete over water supplies, food, and mates, etc. Humans compete forwater, food, and mates, though when these needs are met deep rivalries often arise over the pursuit of wealth, prestige, and fame. Business is often associated with competition as most companies are incompetition with at least one other firm over the same group of customers.
Competition may give incentives for self-improvement.... For example, if two watchmakers are competing for business, theywill hopefully improve their products and service to increase sales. If one watchmaker is more responsive to the needs of consumers, this watchmaker will flourish. If birds compete for a limited watersupply during a drought, the more suited birds will survive to reproduce and improve the population.
Rivals (similarly matched competitors well known to each other) will often refer to their competitorsas "the competition". This is especially true of archrivals (primary, longstanding rivals, often the best in their segment). The term "competition" can also be used to refer to the contest ortournament itself.
Competition is only one of many interacting biotic and abiotic factors that affect sexual community structure. Moreover, competition is not always a straightforward, direct, interaction.Interspecific competition may occur when individuals of two separate species share a limiting resource in the same area. If the resource cannot support both populations, then lowered fecundity,growth, or survival may result in at least one species.
